The Japan Coal Energy Center (JCOAL) was engaged in the "Japan / China Joint Cooperation Project on Spontaneous Combustion Prevention Technology" of a five-year plan starting in 1996. This is part of the "Commissioned Study Project for the Promotion of Stable Coal Supply". The joint research project was initiated in collaboration with the China Coal Mining Research Institute. In the execution of the research project, the Fushun Branch, Coal Mining Research Institute assumes the role of the coordinating counterpart for the Chinese side.<BR>The purpose of this research project is to develop a model for spontaneous combustion prevention through the development of the equipment (hardware) and technology (software) based on the practical applicability experiments in Japan. To achieve this goal, JCOAL will undertake the fabrication of the hardware such as monitoring and measuring equipment, technical instructions and guidance on a short-term basis, system design, and data analysis and evaluation. The Chinese counterpart will carry out in-situ tests to substantiate the practical applicability of the technology at a model coal mine, Lao Hu Tai Colliery, Fushun Mining Bureau, and analyze the test data.<BR>In 1996, there have been more than 90 spontaneous combustion incidents at Lao Hu Tai Colliery. The most encouraging result of the cooperation project is the fact that they have not experienced spontaneous combustion incident in 2000.<BR>In this paper, a general overview of the project and the typical result are described.
